Gardening friends...

We're here to share our experience in all garden topics: Design, choosing plants and materials, and simplifying landscape care. What we've learned in 30 years proefssional gardening and writing, we store here where everyone can use it.

Here's all the dirt on your hosts, Janet and Steven.

30 years of experience ~ What can we do for you?

We are Janet Macunovich and Steven Nikkila. We have 30 years experience as professional gardeners and trainers.  We share with you what we've learned in thousands of gardens about practicality, beauty, fun and simplicity. These are tried-and-true ideas and tools that we've developed or received from others, and present here in easy, illustrated how-to's.

We add new information every day, and plan to keep at it for at least another 30 years. It's invigorating and rewarding to help you grow or connect you to others who will help.

Being part of our network is free.  We make our living as gardeners and intend to keep it that way. There are no ads on this site, but you will find links to businesses that supply the plants and materials we mention.
